‘Take some time to learn first aid. It saves lives, and it works.’

Bobby Sherman

Our First Aid e-Learning course den is designed to fully compliment our Face2Face First Aid course den subjects covered in this den build upon the subjects that are included in our physical taught courses.

During our group taught courses we are constrained by time to go into the depth of all subjects that we would like to. The advantage of this course den is that we can bring you further information on these subjects through our e-learning course den.

Highfield Anaphylaxis and Auto-Injectors e-Learning Course

Why this course?

Anaphylaxis is an extreme and potentially life-threatening allergic reaction, which results in rapid chemical changes in the body.

In the UK it is estimated that almost 20% of the population is affected by at least one allergic disorder.

Anaphylaxis is characterised by quickly developing life-threatening airway, breathing and/or circulation problems. The swelling and tightening of the airway causes breathing difficulties and/or a sudden fall in blood pressure, which can lead to dizziness and fainting.

Autoinjectors offer fast-acting relief to somebody suffering an anaphylactic reaction. The successful administration of a device can prevent serious consequences and provide enough time for emergency services to attend and treat the sufferer.

Description

Our Highfield Anaphylaxis and Autoinjector e-learning Course is designed to help you understand the risks of a severe allergic reaction and how to administer emergency treatment.

The course outlines how anaphylaxis can be caused by a broad range of ‘triggers’, such as insect stings, foods, for example nuts and shellfish, latex and medicines, such as penicillin.

Learners will also learn how to recognise the symptoms and identify how to administer first aid to a casualty who is suffering from anaphylaxis.

VideoTile Learning Epilepsy Awareness e-Learning Course

Why this course?

When introducing epilepsy, we must first recognise that there are around 40 different types of seizures.

Statistics show that one in five people will have a seizure at some time in their life although only some of these will be caused by epilepsy.

Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects the brain and the nervous system and is covered by the Equality Act 2010.

The condition can affect people for only a portion of their life, or it can be lifelong.

Because of the varied nature of the condition an awareness of epilepsy and the actions you can take if you are present during a seizure is incredibly useful for those who work in health and social care.
